L-3 Receives Two 2014 Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement
– 10th Consecutive Year That Company Is Recognized –
NEW YORK -- June 23, 2014
L-3 Communications (NYSE:LLL) announced today that it has received two
prestigious James S. Cogswell Outstanding Industrial Security Achievement
Awards from the U.S. Department of Defense, Defense Security Service (DSS).
L-3’s corporate headquarters as well as its Fuzing & Ordnance Systems (FOS)
division were selected as two of 40 recipients of this year’s award from a
field of 13,300 cleared defense contractors.
Since 2005, L-3 has been recognized with 17 Cogswell Awards for industrial
security excellence – the highest honor a company can receive in the handling
of classified information. This is the 10th consecutive year that L-3 has
received at least one Cogswell Award for outstanding security practices.
“In the current industry environment, outstanding security practices are a
critical business discriminator and across L-3 we strive to not only meet, but
exceed the DoD’s compliance requirements and deliver a sustained level of
security excellence,” said Michael T. Strianese, chairman, president and chief
executive officer of L-3. “For many years, L-3 business units have earned
superior ratings from DSS, which reflects our company-wide commitment to
industrial security. This year, I am particularly proud that our headquarters
office has received a Cogswell Award, along with our FOS business, which is a
major contributor to national security and our military forces.”
The Cogswell Award selection process is both competitive and rigorous,
requiring nominated facilities to clearly demonstrate a consistent and ongoing
degree of excellence and innovation in security program management and
oversight. A national review team is responsible for consolidating and ranking
the thoroughly vetted nominees, and DSS makes the final award selections.
Headquartered in New York City, L-3 employs approximately 48,000 people
worldwide and is a prime contractor in aerospace systems and national security
solutions. L-3 is also a leading provider of a broad range of communication
and electronic systems and products used on military and commercial platforms.
The company reported 2013 sales of $12.6 billion.
